Swedish term or phrase:Ts
The last line of my Excel file with staff comments about service level. Absolutely no other useful context on these discrete comments.
***Ts*** återkopplar alltid.
is this a plural form of the letter "T" and what could it stand for?
There are a few SV words that are (incorrectly?) given an s in the plural form when speaking (perhaps not in writing). The only one I can think of is "sambo" which is "sambor" in the plural form according to SAOL, although I have often heard people say "sambos". I have also seen words borrowed from EN that are given an s in the plural form when used in SV, eg "smartphones". So... if the asker has "T" for "technician" I think it is possible that "Ts" is intended as a plural form of "technician".
that's true and I wasn't thinking straight. On the other hand, its not a possessive cos there is a verb that follows and not a noun.
So what could it be if not perhaps a Swede using English plural?
I do have the word 'technicians' a lot in the text and that starts and ends with T and s respectively. That is what I now think it is, an abbreviation
